Xbox One Consoles Gets Updated To Stream 4K YouTube Content

Microsoft’s Xbox One X and S consoles are finally started to get 4K YouTube support this week. You can simply download the updated app for the One X and One S consoles manually or wait for the automatic release.

The Xbox One X is now able to already stream YouTube content in 4K, and Microsoft regarding it tells that HDR support is “coming soon.” 4K and HDR support is coming to the Xbox One S as well, but it won’t be this week.

So the official YouTube app is getting a major upgrade for Xbox One X today and the Xbox One S a bit later.

Microsoft has started rolling out an app for the Xbox One X console that provides support for 4K videos at up to 60fps – but not HDR. It is definitely worth it if you’re in the market for a new console, where the Xbox One X would be a tough sell to you, as we think the 4K experience on the One S (which doesn’t allow for 4K gaming, but does upscale graphics and supports HDR). Adding 4K YouTube support just makes S even better.

That feature is the ability to play YouTube videos in 4K and HDR, which can now at least scratch 4K off the list following an update to the YouTube app available now. With the addition of 4K streaming to the Xbox One X YouTube app, the gamers can enjoy full playback. But with the lack of HDR support, it is still disappointing, while Microsoft says that will be rolled out pretty soon.

Also coming is support for both 4K and HDR streaming of YouTube on the Xbox One S. The Microsoft’s Xbox One X already is capable to play 4K Blu-ray content but streaming via YouTube in the same resolution has proven illusive.

If you are the owner of the Xbox One X console, then the updated YouTube app is rolling out now. Or you can also download and can be installed it manually from the Windows Store today.
